Young Person’s Sanctuary Launching in Sandy!
Mental Health Crisis Support for 14-17yrs in Central Bedfordshire.
Mind BLMK are delighted to be working collaboratively with CAMHS and East London Foundation Trust (ELFT) across Luton, Central Bedfordshire and Bedford, to provide crisis services for young people in need of mental health support.
This new provision in Sandy (at the Sandy and Biggleswade Locality Children’s Centre) follows the successful launch of our Young Person’s Sanctuary in Luton, Bedford, Houghton Regis and Leighton Buzzard earlier this year and it will offer help and advice for anyone between 14-17yrs.
Our Young Person’s Sanctuaries are safe, non-judgemental spaces that you can come to if you find yourself in crisis or mental distress in the evenings.
There is no need to call and book an appointment, simply drop in and you will be met by a trained youth mental health worker who will listen and help you identify ways to address the problems you are facing. The teams will also be able to refer and signpost to other services if required.
📍 Sandy Community Children’s Centre, Laburnum Rd, SG19 1HQ

Further support for young people HERE.
Speaking out – especially to those close to you can be the first step to seeking help and finding ways to cope with how you are feeling.
